Arsene Wenger has today revealed that Aaron Ramsey is set to return to the squad ahead of the trip to Queens Park Rangers on Wednesday.
Ramsey has been out of action since succumbing to his third hamstring injury of the season after he was brought on in the home game against Leicester City last month.

The boss has previously admitted that Ramsey’s injury was a worry and that the medical staff hadn’t discovered why a player of the Welshman’s age and obvious physical qualities was suffering multiple soft tissue problems.
“There is an underlying reason that is medical or bio-mechanical, because he’s a guy who is serious, works hard,” said Wenger to the BBC a fortnight ago.

“There’s no obvious reason why he should have muscular injuries.”
It is yet to be determined whether Ramsey will be fit to start on Wednesday but ahead of the crucial FA Cup clash at Old Trafford on Monday, his presence in the squad is vital.
Francis Coquelin will be a vital presence at the base of the midfield against the bigger teams, but will need a more disciplined presence than Cazorla alongside him. That man could be Ramsey.
Cazorla and Coquelin have formed a competent partnership and the return of our player of the year from lasts season increases the selection headache for Wenger.
